Eleven is a lot of things…
Eleven is on the cusp…being there is thrilling, yet scary.
Eleven is looking ahead and holding on.
Lara is 11.
So the mood of her room needs to be eleven…two steps forward & one back.
Lara is keeping her gallery collection ( pictured above ). The color scheme will play off the collection ~ purple & yellow mostly, with bursts of pink & orange. (One pink burst being the Barbie Dream House ~ don’t tell!)
These are the fabrics we like. Swatches are on the way! If they are big enough we can make sachets with them after we decide.
Sharing a preview of what we are honing in on to achieve that look & feel and would love your input ( you have all been 11, so you know…)
Think of this post as a virtual mood board. Take all the elements together & let us know what you think. (source listings at the end)
The vibe will be boho meets vintage charm & modern whimsy.
Like an old soul in a young carefree body – just like my Lara.
The furniture is antique and flea market, the light wonderful, the floor original 1935 oak. We have moved the furniture & sconces already.
Here is what it looked like before.
Do let us know your favorite fabrics for pillows and for a curtain for the closet, as we are contemplating removing the door for fun.
But don’t tell me you don’t like the funky yellow zebra rug. It was final sale at One King’s Lane. Or the white ruffled quilt, as PB Teen just sent it & matching shams on their merry way.
We need lamps. I have an idea, but am open to suggestions. Just let Lara & I know what you think so far.
Painting this weekend so wish us luck with getting the purple right!

p.s. when making your suggestions remember, we need room for her too!
